UGA DNA Special Interest Group

The following is from the Utah Genealogical Association.


DNA Special Interest Group

UGA is pleased to be hosting a DNA Special Interest Group once again.  The group will meet on the third Tuesday of each month utilizing both online and in-person formats. Meetings are open to UGA members only.  For meeting links and locations, or to access recorded presentations, please login and click on the DNA interest group under the Members tab.
DNA SIG format:  Meetings will be held on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm.  Most presentations will be delivered virtually and recorded for member viewing. Every fourth meeting will be held in-person and will not be recorded for privacy reasons. Members may submit questions for the in-person meetings ahead of time, and the presentation will facilitate working through the questions and related discussion.

Presenter:  Stephanie Saylor
Stephanie holds a degree in Biology with an emphasis in Neuroscience and has actively worked in research for several years on topics including: Parkinson's disease, toxicity of TCDD, opioid receptors, maternal immune activation and glial cells.  Stephanie has completed several genetic-genealogical-related courses, including the Advanced DNA course at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy and the Advanced DNA Practicum at the Forensic Genealogy Institute.  Presentations and workshops will combine her DNA background with a firm belief in sound research and a love of genealogy.
